Retro Moco Ads: 1990
This week we travel back 30 years to 1990..

Who else got their Christmas trees at Hechinger?
Wheaton Plaza is now Westfield Wheaton. While many people gave up on this mall years ago, it now features COSTCO, Target, and a Choice Wine & Beer. Who remembers Montgomery Wards?
Back to the Future
Dive-In Movie 1990
DC Party Box 2020
Back in 1990 you could watch Back to the Future at the “Dive-in Move” at Stedwick Pool. In 2020, the classic film was shown at DC Party Box’s drive-in theater in Rockville.
Montgomery Village Center
We’ve been posting a lot about the Montgomery Village Center lately; here’s some advertisements from their grand reopening exactly 30 years ago!
The Bob’s Big Boys turned into a Shoney’s in the mid-90’s before becoming Denny’s in 2000. The building was demolished in 2019 and is now the site of Bank of America.
The Toy Place
The Toy Place closed back in 1992. In 2020, it’s almost impossible to find a toy store in the area.
Back in August one of the last toy stores in Moco, Toy Castle in Potomac, closed after 41 years in business.
